funny you should bring this up Infiniti. I was at the mall a couple days ago, and it was the same for me--just about every where someone was using an iPhone--and the age range was anywhere from teen up to adult and even older adults(grandma&grandpa age-wise) I did catch a glimpse of a few berries here and there, but def not like the iPhone.
the other thing i noticed, is alot more people had the white instead of the black.

It is very cool to see so many out there. People love them.
I remember when I bought the first iPhone 2G. Nobody had them, it was priced way out of the general consumers reach and I got asked about it NON STOP. Seriously, I actually stopped taking it out because it would catch someones eye and they would not hesitate to ask me all about it.

I was at the Mall in Indianapolis, because I had an appointment at the Apple store. iPhones were everywhere. What really shocked me....while waiting to exchange my iP4S.... I could not believe how many people were waiting to replace their iPhones because of cracked screens. ( due to dropping them ) None of them had some kind of case protection on their phone. One girl was getting her 4th phone and of course had to pay for it. Wow....I would love to carry my phone naked, but the cost of replacing it is out of my reach.

I crashed with a buddy of mine last year for a few months and he was an Apple employee. He told me once that his store had close to 600 iPhone 4's in the back that were returned/exchanged with busted screens. According to him they would be sent out weekly and it would only take a few days to start getting half that number. Always use to tell me that people busted these phones in the most stupid way sometimes. One guy he said, gave his brand new iPhone 4 to his 3 year old daughter, seconds after walking out of the store with it and she had a temper tantrum and she revolted by throwing it as far as she could.

I like kids, but there's no f'ing way any child will touch my phone. Ever. I have hard cases and screen protectors on there but I don't care. That's not a child toy. I have seen many a busted screen from a kid throwing or dropping it.

I have a 3-1/2yo niece that's brilliant and I still would not let her handle my phone. A temper tantrum can happen at any time and it won't be with my phone. My Sil(her mom) lets her use her iPhone but that's not for me to comment on.
& I love kids, hubby & I have 5 of our own

Last month we took a ferry over to Liberty Island. While being crammed in with what felt like a billion people, I couldn't help but notice how many people had their iPhones out. It just amazes me. Everywhere we go. I see a few Droids here and there and even less BBs. And yes I purposely look for this everywhere we go. Drives my husband crazy but I'm impressed and amazed. And yes I too am noticing a LOT of white iPhones. I thought it was kinda funny when my 23 yr old son preferred the white. To me it's feminine but there are so many guys out there with them as well.

I like looking at all the cases too. Lol and YES many different age ranges too. My sons great aunt got an iPhone from her company fr business and this was quite some time ago. I work at a private College and more and more are trading in BBs for iPhones. Even the Jesuit there. Lol

Every time I'm on the bus in Seattle, iPhones are predominant. I really felt out of place, when I still used my Android.
One day I saw a woman who had wrapped hers with strapping tape. She said she did that, rather than use a case.... AUGH!
